To bloviate means “to speak pompously and excessively.” That definition comes right out of Wikipedia. Today I heard Bill Kristol describe Al Gore as a bloviator and he went on to describe the Nobel Committee as bloviators. I think William ought to look in the mirror. If there was ever a king of hot air and smoke it is Bill Kristol. I think the right wing pundits are a bit distressed that Albert Gore is in the same category now with Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King and Desmond Tutu.
